South Ossetian Dependency2010-04-20 23:52
The latest survey of South Ossetian citizens showed that they feel part of Russia. This is not strange as the republic lives on Russian money and is governed by a Prime Minister appointed by Moscow Vadim Brutes. But this dependency already worries the supporters of President Edward Kookily who started their campaign aimed at discrediting the native of the Urals. Georgia considered the survey results as evidence of the republic annexation by Russia.
The independence of South Ossetia after the war of 2008 is a conditional concept. This is proved by the latest survey among the republic citizens. Only half of the surveyed people see their motherland as a «sovereign state» in future, and at this moment 67% perceive it as part of Russia. Not of Georgia, as not a single surveyed person mentioned any appurtenance to this country.
This did not prevent the Georgian «Club of Experts» put the survey results into their piggy bank of arguments confirming the occupation and annexation of the «Tskhinvali's Region» as part of the Georgian territory.
Considering such a social profile, one would not expect direct entry of South Ossetia to the CIS, commented Modest Korero, CEO of the Regnum IA and Chairman of the Academic Senate of the International Institute of Newest States (MING) that held the survey with the support of the South Ossetian State University.
The political technologist also assured that in no case Russia will exchange the return of South Ossetia for Georgia's refusal to enter the NATO. «Such exchange will not happen ever and at any circumstances, because it directly contradicts the people's interests», he stressed.
The surveyed people were not asked if such perception was good or bad for the republic. However, 75% are not happy with the current events of South Ossetia and over 40% think that the situation must be changed by common effort of all the government branches.
This result gave Korero cause for declaring that the South Ossetian society does not notice any interdepartmental or intergovernmental conflict, dividing the responsibility among all public structures.
However, the evaluation of the activity of the elected president Edward Kookily and Vadim Brutes appointed by Russia speaks for itself. 43% of the population positively evaluate the President's work, while only 23% have a positive opinion about the work of the Prime Minister, and only 14% considered were gracious to the government in general.
